FieldCandy Custom Design Tents

FieldCandy

The ‘design-led’ tents from FieldCandy inject color, creativity, and fun into the camping experience by taking the standard tent design and giving each one a fun story to tell.

Don’t let the designs fool you though; these are also high performance tents, made to keep you dry in the rain, warm in the cold, and comfortable in the wind. Plus, the cotton inner tent doesn’t attract condensation the way that most modern tents do.

I’d imagine the one downside is that they don’t look quite as picture-perfect when you pitch one at your local camping spot as they do on the website, but even if it’s just good for a few good laughs every time you set it up, I’d say that’s reason enough to give FieldCandy a try.

…You should tell the rain who’s boss?

Fuck The Rain

Tell the rain how you really feel with Art. Lebedev Studio’s Fuck The Rain umbrella.

Featuring a giant hand giving the one finger salute, it’s the perfect way to say “rain, rain, go away” and mean it.

…USPS is impressive?

USPS

Mail is a magical thing.

You handwrite an address on an envelope and attach a stamp to the outside, and a few days later your letter arrives exactly where it’s supposed to be.

So how does the USPS manage to handle 703 million pieces of mail per day?

Good Magazine has put together an impressive graphic representation of a comparison between FedEx, UPS, DHL and the USPS, and the numbers are staggering:

    700,000 employees, $73 billion revenue, 37,000 post offices, and 216,000 vehicles, all to deliver you your bills, Netflix, and credit card offers.

Rain, sleet or snow indeed.

…Umbrellas can be deadly?

Squirt Gun Umbrella

Since I’ve been sloshing through the rain for a few days now, I am starting to wish there was a better way to stay dry.

While this umbrella might not keep you out of the elements any better than a normal umbrella, it will keep you entertained with a squirt gun handle that is perfect for hand to hand combat.

Rainwater is collected to fill the gun’s reservoir, and the umbrella itself acts as a shield in case of ambush, so there’re the perfect cure for rainy day blues.

Slosh on.
